No artist offered a more incisive and accurate portrait of the troubled landscape of the 1970s than David Bowie. Cultural historian Peter Doggett explores the rich heritage of Bowie's most productive and inspired decade, and traces the way in which his music reflected and influenced the world around him. From 'Space Oddity', his dark vision of mankind's voyage into the unknown terrain of space, to the Scary Monsters album, Doggett examines in detail Bowie's audacious creation of an 'alien' rock star, Ziggy Stardust, and his increasingly perilous explorations of the nature of identity and the meaning of fame. Mixing brilliant musical critique with biographical insight and acute cultural analysis, The Man Who Sold The World is a unique study of a major artist and his times.

The myth of Ronald Reagans greatness has reached epic proportions in recent years. The public rates him as one of the most popular presidents, and Republicans everywhere seek to cast themselves in his image. But, William Kleinknecht reveals, much that has gone wrong in America - including the subprime mortgage crisis and the meltdown of the financial sector - can be traced directly to Reagans policies. Boom-and-bust cycles, CEO salaries, drug-company scandals, collapsing bridges, plummeting wages for working people, the flight of U.S. manufacturing abroad - these are all products of Reagans free-market zealotry and his gutting of the public sector. The Man Who Sold the World is the first book to explode the Reagan myth.

Following Solomon Trone into the heart of the conspiracies of the last century, this book traces the story of a simple businessman, leading a sedate life in upstate New York, who was thrown into a Cold War nightmare filled with assassination, secret agents, revolution, and danger. Of particular interest to skeptics of the establishment who lived through the Cold War, this story of deep-seated corruption will also appeal to millennials interested in political action but cynical about the two-party ideologies passed down the generations. Referencing documentation that many people have died to keep secret, this book gives readers a compelling reason to question assumptions of anyone with staunch political beliefs.
